Jesus Christ, Sun of God: Ancient Cosmology, and Early Christian Symbolism (New)
by Fideler, David
Publisher: Quest Books
Book ID: 9780835606981, 0835606988
Please inquire for availability
The early Christian Gnosis did not spring up in isolation, but drew upon earlier sources. In this book, many of these sources are revealed for the first time. Special emphasis is placed on the Hellenistic doctrine of the "Solar Logos" and the early Christian symbolism which depicted Christ as the Spiritual Sun, the illumination source of order, harmony, and spiritual insight.
Based on 15 years of research, this is a unique book which throws a penetrating light on the secret traditions of early Christianity. It clearly demonstrates that number is at the heart of being. Jesus Christ, Sun of God, illustrates how the Christian symbolism of the Spiritual Sun is derived from numerical symbolism of the "ancient divinities."
"This book is the rarest of treasures: a combination of scholarly acumen and deep esoteric insight." --- Gnosis Magazine
David Fideler studied hellenistic religions and philosophies at the University of Pennsylvania, specializing in the study of Christian origins and ancient cosmology. He is the editor of The Pythagorean Sourcebook and Library and the editor of Phanes Press, which publishes quality books on the spiritual and philosophical traditions of the Western world.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
